I bought this make French Macaroons as a surprise for my partner, and he had a great time. He had no idea what we were going to do and was very excited when he found out. The Chef was brilliant, he explained things well, put everything we were doing into context and from start to finish we made, created and baked four different flavored Macaroons.
After we were able to take all our baked goodies with us with our supplied carry boxes. We were very popular back at our hotel reception desk when we handed them out, and they loved them and said they where the best they had ever had. We told them we had just made them, and they couldn't believe we could make such perfect tasting macaroons, well we did and in no small part to the wonderful guidance of master Chef Frederic.
This makes a great surprise event which can be done with a loved one or the whole family. Well set up, very clean and excellent training with fluent English proffesional French Chef. Superb!
This was the highlight of our entire trip to Europe. Chef Fred went above and beyond our expectations. The venue was beautiful and spotless, he was prepared and had nice sot jazz music in the background and we had an amazing cooking class with lots of take away treats!
This class was fantastic we had great time. We made four different kinds of Macaroons and we surprised at how easy the Chef made it feel to make them. The class was very interesting and we learnd several different techniques, it was also a lot of fun. The only down point to this class is that we have not received the recipes yet so we are unable to try making macaroons at home.
Ms. Brohan was a wonderful hostess and teacher. Very educational, she demonstrated what to do then set us loose to try it. Macaroons are delicious!
We loved making and then eating our Macaroons, they were delicious and Chef Frederick was very professional, charming and funny. We felt right at home with him and definitely recommend anyone interested in cooking, baking and eating.
This was SOOOOO Much fun! There were only 2 of us and we made four flavors of macaroons in about 3 hours. I sincerely enjoyed this experience and no matter your cooking experience you will have a great time. Fred was our instructor and he spoke wonderful English, his apartment was quite roomy and we had lots of great cooking talks with advice and ideas. I will book again with Viatour! Directions were spot on and clear to find the location as well.
This was one of the highlights of my trip. What could be better than to have a baking class with a chef in her home? This experience far surpassed my expectations. I would suggest that everyone takes this class or one of the other classes that Chef Marthe offers. I can't wait to start making my own macaroons!
Wonderful experience! TOP NOTCH! Would definitely recommend to others...would do this class or other cooking/baking classes like it again...
Very pleased we took this macaroon course. It was in her own home and she was excellent teacher with strong English language. Hands on cooking with hints and guidance achieved perfect macaroons. Highly recommend this to anyone wishing to make macaroon perfect everytime.
Chef Fred was fantastic and such a great host. We had a small group of 4 for our class and he made us all feel part of the process plus we got to eat some yummy macaroons aswell as taking a box home :)
Chef Fred gave us some great insights into French cooking not only for how to make macaroons! This tour made our time in Paris special and I would do another cooking class with Chef Fred tomorrow!
We had a wonderful time! Dominique was amazing as were the macaroons!!!!!!!
Great experience! Dominic was fantastic! What a fun, informative and delicious way to experience French cuisine. My 10-year-old son and I both thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
Chef Dominique was very gracious in allowing us into his home. It was a ways away from city center, but it was cool to see how Parisiens live! We learned the very detailed steps to making a Macaroon and my spouse felt these Macaroons were better than the ones we got at Laduree Paris! Had a great time!
Wonderful! Chef 'Fred' was so lovely. We really did teach us techniques and asnwered all our questions (we're both serious bakers ourselves). Plus we had all kinds of great recommendations for around Paris. Chef Fred made the whole experience wonderful!
Went ahead with only 1 in the group (me!) so I got a personal session. Dominique was an excellent teacher: his English was perfect, he explained/demonstrated the process very well and I was able to participate in many of the steps. He sent me the recipes by email promptly after the class. The macaroons tasted great (we made both chocolate and raspberry ones). I was very impressed by this class and would highly recommend it. A very fun/different activity for a holiday in Paris.
Our chef Frederic was very knowledgeable, helpful and an incredible host. We had a fun filled afternoon. I would do this again!!! Thanks Frederic for the fabulous memories!
Great class. Chef Dominique Dury was fantastic, and very well prepared for our class. The only draw back was the lack of A/C in the apartment, as it happened to be a very hot/humid afternoon in Paris.
Great experience!!! Never knew they took soooo long to make!!
This was a very interesting and unusual thing to do! We went to a french chef's personal apartment where she had everything waiting and ready for us to bake. We made two varieties of macaroons (raspberry and milk chocolate and coconut). We were a small group, just four of us. It took about 3 hours, and Marthe was great. We each left with about 15 macaroons each in a box to take with us. Fun and unusual experience!
Chef Dominique was awesome! Our macaroons were absolutely delicious!!!!! My only recommendation is that having an experience like this in someone's home is a bit awkward at first. Maybe provide background music or offer a glass of champagne to start the event so everyone can loosen up. Without this, after about 30 minutes, we were all chit-chatting and making macaroons. A little levity in the very beginning would be great, though. :)
Learning how to make macaroons in Paris at a Parisians home kitchen was one of the highlights of my Europe holiday. Our host/ chef/ teacher welcomed us into his home and we felt at ease and had lots of fun. I recommend this tour to anybody who enjoys cooking or eating these sweet treats.
